Thing 12

First Tool

It has taken me quite a number of tries, but I have created a Blabberize to use along with my mathematics research paper for this semester. Don't get me wrong...I love Blabberize. Though, the talking pictures do kind of creep me out. I can see a number of uses, especially for papers on famous persons and for elementary students. You can take an animal project and turn it into the actuall animal telling about himself. That's what I hope my students will do with this. Please check out my blog post for my class that will introduce the term paper and the extension of the term paper.

Second Tool

Glogster is cool!!! It's like an online poster maker. You can use it for so many things. I've made a number of Glogs that can be seen on my profile page (hopefully you don't need the password). My only two complaints are that I'm not very artistic, so I like other people's glogs better than mine, and I don't like how long they take to download sometimes. See my glog on glogging.
